EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for March 2, 2021The direction of the EUR/USD on Tuesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to 1.2010.
The Euro is trading lower against the U.S. Dollar on Tuesday after the release of a report that showed Euro Zone inflation held steady as expected last month, taking a break in what is likely to be a temporary but sharp spike in consumer prices in the coming months.
Perhaps helping to put a lid on the Euro is chatter saying instead of tightening on higher inflation, the ECB may actually ease further, possibly as soon as its March 11 meeting, to counter a recent rise in nominal yields, which threatens to choke off growth by making borrowing more expensive.
